Mandrake Linux Security Advisory : xine-lib (MDKSA-2005:011)

This script is Copyright (C) 2005-2013 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

The remote Mandrake Linux host is missing one or more security
updates.

Description :

iDefense discovered that the PNA_TAG handling code in pnm_get_chunk()
does not check if the input size is larger than the buffer size
(CVE-2004-1187). As well, they discovered that in this same function,
a negative value could be given to an unsigned variable that specifies
the read length of input data (CVE-2004-1188).

Ariel Berkman discovered that xine-lib reads specific input data into
an array without checking the input size making it vulnerable to a
buffer overflow problem (CVE-2004-1300).

The updated packages have been patched to prevent these problems.
